daftykinshe's pretty brave to do stuff live, so many cooks helping to spoil the broth... i corrected a switch he was using on a program the other day 'cause he was so distracted he missed the man page line stating it was the wrong thing12:49
zxmpiit was about the same level of excitement when you got cd-rom working back then too :-D13:02
daftykinshehehe13:04
zxmpian original cd rom, external. you'd be lucky to 150kbs over it's own wacky serial jobbie13:06

zxmpithat's what i mean14:37
zxmpikinda like the speccy keyboard, it was awful, inspired a 1000 jokes and yet it was a solid part of the spectrum experience14:38
* zxmpi wonders how big a hard drive you'd need to have every game and bit of software for all bbc archives14:44
daftykinshaving a mate at archive.org might help ;)14:45
